YM reader sends in a shot of a sailing school yacht hard aground

YM reader and yachtsman Myron Bileckyj sent us this photograph, taken while coming out of the Hamble River earlier this month. ‘Wonder what happened to the skipper… was this an intentional Yachtmaster grounding exercise?’ he asked.

Look out for our special EXPERT ON BOARD feature in the September issue on how to avoid accidental groundings and what to do to get your boat off safely.
